Can’t just say goodbye

We could have said goodbye,

Lost track of one another

And gone on with our own

But we couldn’t.

We could have lived the lie

That said it was done and over

And time heals all things

But it doesn’t.

We could have asked why

We didn’t make it or fake it

All these years apart

But we didn’t.

We had so much yet never touched

The friend we called our lover.

Now time has passed and we might last

Enough to soon discover…

That goodbye isn’t all there is

When things just don’t work out.

We’ve shared too much and now as such

We’ve learned what love’s about.

I’m glad we took the time today

To talk it through, make it okay

And be the friends that were in our stars

Closer now, and not so far.
